How You Can Help

Volunteering

Team Krissy Website

Help Us Support Krissy

 

We are always in need of volunteers to help out at drives and to promote bone marrow donor registration. Volunteers would help pass out flyers, talk to people at the event to inform them about registering, and join in on the Kobata family fun! If you are interested in helping at a local drive, contact Team Krissy.

 

We are always looking for people who are willing to host a drive for us. Contact A3M or Team Krissy to find out how you can host a drive and register people on your own. Or if you know of a venue or event that we could set up a registration table at.

 

We are also looking for some sponsorship and promotion opportunities. Anyone who can help us spread the word about Krissy needing to find a match would be extremely helpful to our campaign. If you know of people we can contact for sponsorships and promotion or you may know of a possible drive location for us, please contact Team Krissy. You can also contact any of the marrow donor centers that we have listed under our links section to find out how you can help their organizations.

 

We can't emphasize any more how easy it is for you to play a part in helping Krissy. A simple e-mail to your own friends and family and spreading the word through your own networks could do wonders for our cause.  Thank you for caring!

Volunteer at a Team Krissy Event

 

We are always looking for help at Team Krissy drives and events. Volunteers could help sign up and register possible donors and also help pass out flyers and inform people about the process of registering. If you are interested in becoming a Team Krissy volunteer email Sharon or Randy and let them know that you want to help out and they will add your name to the list. Thanks!! We really appreciate your help!

Most people will not match anyone in their family - about 70% of cases. If someone you knew needed one, wouldn't you like to know that people were willing to help a stranger? Are you willing?

Registering is very easy and only takes about 10 minutes. It requires no blood, just a simple cotton swab of the mouth.

Before you register read up on what registering entails and what the process of donating bone marrow is really like
here. If you have read the information and are ready to register there are several options for you.

NEW: Register Online

A new way to register is by using the promo code: _____________  on this website: http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/Join_Now/join_now.html.  It's open to minorities and multiracial donors, but everyone is encouraged to make a contribution towards the tissue typing costs. If you are a Caucasian donor, please register without the promo code and use this link instead http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/Join_Now_Sponsored/join_now_sponsored.html

Register In person at a drive

The easiest way to register is by going to a drive that is near you. All it takes is 10 minutes to fill out the forms and take a sampling of your cheek cells to send off to the lab. You can find upcoming drives here. We also have the donor consent forms available so you can save some time and fill them out before you reach the drive. Download here in English or Spanish.

Register in person at a local donor center

If you can't make it to any of the drives than you also have the option of visiting a donor center near you. We are working directly through Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M). You could go to their center (you may need to make an appointment) and get the paperwork and mouth swabs. Check out our links section to get in touch with a site near you. You may also check out City of Hope or the National Donor Program to see if they are holding any drives or registration events.
